Interview: Writer-Director Abi Damaris Corbin And Writer Kwame Kwei-Armah Discuss Compassion & Veteran Trauma In ‘Breaking’

A tragic story like that of Lance Corporal Brian Brown-Easley requires and deserves the compassion he should’ve received. Thankfully, Breaking, a film based on his story, does just that. 

Developed by acclaimed writer Kwame Kwei-Armah and up-and-coming writer/director Abi Damaris Corbin, Breaking is unlike many hostage/robbery thrillers before it. That’s because these two creative forces ensured that this movie told the tale of a man who struggled to find help and resorted to unorthodox methods to call out a system not built for him and many others to navigate. 

Geeks of Color spoke with Kwei-Armah and Corbin about their new film Breaking, veteran trauma, and the need for compassion in our world.
